Behind the scenes of the museum: Stores, access and its implications. The proceedings of a conference held at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam on the 24 to 26 January 2001

In the late 1990s, several countries made changes to their legislation on firearms and there was also a significant shift in public attitudes to firearms. During this period, museums of arms and armour and military history in many European countries became increasingly aware of their duty to preserve the collections in their care, whilst at the same time improving the way in which collections were presented to the public. Museum professionals working in the field met in Amsterdam to discuss these developments, with especial reference to the problem of museum reserves.

La fin des années 1990 a vu des modifications apportées aux lois sur les armes à feu dans certains pays et un changement significatif de l'attitude du public envers celles-ci. Pendant cette période, les musées d'armes et d'histoire militaire se sont montrés de plus en plus conscients de leur devoir de préserver leurs collections, tout en améliorant l'accueil du public. Les professionnels de musée qui travaillent dans ce domaine se sont réunis à Amsterdam afin de réfléchir à cette évolution, tout particulièrement au problème des réserves.
